5 out of 5 eggsExcellent choice!

This review is from: Western Digital WD Blue WD10EZEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: The hard drive delivered on time and was nicely packaged in protective wrap and anti-static bag. The initial run was successful, and I used Symantec Ghost to copy my game and media content over to the hard drive. After booting up the computer completely, there was a rough time at start, but got it working and works great while loading up games and media.

Cons: Initially, it had trouble loading up at the first boot with the hard drive. After a reboot, I was able to get it fully working and assign it's volume label and letter, as I already cloned my game drive to it. I don't really count this as a con nor would deduct an egg from it.

This hard drive outperforms my previous 320GB hard drive in response time.

Other Thoughts: I could use another one of these to migrate my project drive and media center files to it, as well as use it was a webdrive in my Local Area Network environment. Will buy these again!

5 out of 5 eggsNo Complaints

This review is from: Western Digital WD Blue WD10EZEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Works
1TB of storage
SATA
Price
Quiet
I originally got this drive to put windows on until I was able to get an SSD for my main drive. Still using it as my main drive until then. Mainly because my other storages are full. When I get the SSD I am going to install my OS onto that and then wipe this one clean and use it as a storage. I then plan on getting more storage drives when I can afford them. Slowly but surely. Been working on this build for years now.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: No other thoughts. My girlfriend however just woke up and jumped down my throat for typing this review asking me what I was doing. I guess she thinks I am instant messaging some girl or something because she was mad. Its not like I was typing loud or anything. Women.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's WD what else is there to say?

This review is from: Western Digital WD Blue WD10EZEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Stable, reliable, Western Digital. I mean, c'mon, the WD Drive I had before this one lasted me YEARS and I expect this one too do the same. Western Digital has never let me down before.

Cons: none

1 out of 5 eggsWorks fine while it's on.

This review is from: Western Digital WD Blue WD10EZEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Good amount of storage. Quiet. Shipped fast both times.

Cons: Whenever I put any load on the drive, it disappears. Completely vanishes from my drive selection. I RMA the drive and they send me a new one, works fine for a while, then same issue.

Other Thoughts: More specific, while playing Titanfall a few weeks ago, before I could complete a single match, the sound started glitching and only playing certain sounds and then the game crashed. Whenever I tried to reopen the game using the icon on my desktop, it would say that the shortcut doesn't exist. I open My Computer to open it from the folder, and the drive isn't there; just my lonely SSD. I unplug power to the drive and then plug it back in, and poof, there it is. Open the game back up, same exact thing happens. After a week of use, the RMA does it too. I've tried everything. Eventually moved the game to my SSD and it works just fine. No one is answering my questions about what's wrong, trying Seagate next.

2 out of 5 eggsCould not format, showed up as RAW

This review is from: Western Digital WD Blue WD10EZEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: 1 TB. It's a Western Digital, which has been good quality in the past. large cache

Cons: Using drive as secondary drive for SSD/HDD combo. SSD worked like a charm. Installed OS, no issues. Connected this drive, attempted to create a partition via disk management. Windows was unable to format the drive, and the drive showed as "RAW" instead of NTFS. Attempted to format the drive via installation desk, could not even reach installation menus. Could not run chkdsk, or diskpart. Hopefully Newegg/Western Digital replace this with a functioning drive.

Other Thoughts: Spent a lot of time trying to get this drive to work, no luck.

3 out of 5 eggsWorks... Kind of?

This review is from: Western Digital WD Blue WD10EZEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Got the 1tb model - Very quiet and without much heat for the majority of the time. More space than most people even really need. Good established and trusted brand.

Cons: Began failing pretty soon after the build. Works 9 times out of 10, but still a 10% failure rate is too much.

Other Thoughts: Going to buy a replacement, send this one back after it gets here, and hopefully get everything in working order again.

5 out of 5 eggsDid what I needed.

This review is from: Western Digital WD Blue WD10EZEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: I bought it as a go between drive to shuffle things from a larger drive to a smaller drive and then from that smaller drive to the larger drive. Copy times were acceptable and done mostly while I was away from the PC. Right now its serving as a backup drive to mirror folders of important documents, photos, music, videos etc..

Cons: It wasn't free.

Other Thoughts: Amazingly fast shipping. Had it in 2 days. Wish I had something more helpful to say about the drive. But right now its just serving a purpose of a mirror type of thing.

4 out of 5 eggsBest Dollar Value for a 1TB

This review is from: Western Digital WD Blue WD10EZEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: I've had WD drives for years -- the drive that is being replaced is a 500GB WD Blue drive thats approx 4 years old. Its still working but getting close to end of life so I've purchased this 1TB model to replace it. I've always had good luck with WD and I hope this new drive lasts as long as the one being replaced.

Cons: The Acronis software provided online to do the disk "clone" operation is unimpressive. First, the installation process installs three modules that are added to your system startup. I don't understand why low duty cycle/use software feels the need to load up the Startup Folder. I did use the software to clone the old 500GB WD drive over to the new 1TB drive -- and it worked FINE. But, I did it on another junker PC as opposed to my everyday work PC. And, once the clone was over I uninstalled and stripped out the Acronis software. Why ANYONE would make such a complicated software product to do a simple clone operation is beyond me!!! It should be a simple Linux ISO that you download and burn to a CD -- nothing to install and you just run it once and then throw the CD away.....

Other Thoughts: I hope I get the service from this new WD drive that I've gotten from WD in the past. WD is slightly more expensive than Seagate and I'm willing to pay the small amount just because of the history of reliability I've had. Hopefully, I won't experience infant mortality with this new drive -- time will tell.....

2 out of 5 eggsGood for only about one month

This review is from: Western Digital WD Blue WD10EZEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Installed on a new PC with ASUS Mobo, Intel CPU. Running smooth and quiet for a month.

Cons: Won't spin up after about a month. Try it on external SATA still no spin. Have to spend shipping to RMA it.
